Ever since J.R. McNeill asked, "How fascist is Donald Trump?” in a Washington Post Op-Ed (Oct 21, 2016), scholars and the media have been debating what to call Mr. Trump’s political campaign. With the former President’s stated plan to consolidate executive power if re-elected, the GOP’s ongoing attack on transgender people, and Trump followers’ willingness to use violence to return him to power, is there now any doubt about what we are seeing?
In this presentation, Dale Anderson, UUSJ Trustee, a Floridian, will explore these issues, relate them to what is happening in Florida, and ask why UUs, democracy advocates, and the media continue to avoid using the “F-word.” Driven by his concern for the health of our democracy since 2017, Dale has been presenting “How Fascism Works: The Global Rise of Authoritarianism” and “The Authoritarian Playbook” to various organizations.
